NeSI provides a range of services, people, expertise, and information to help computational research projects become reality


COVID-19 Essential Service

NeSI remains open for normal business during the level 4 shutdown. Our team is working remotely and remain available during this time.

NeSI is a supplier of essential services to research teams working on the COVID-19 response across NZ. If you're involved in this work, please get in touch and we will do our best to assist in any way possible.
